Kids and Games

Now the kids are a little bit bigger we do let them use tablets and mobile devices for games. We take the kids out a lot to new places, so we think that a few games here and there are fine for when we need some quiet time. This is great for me being a student, I often let them watch music videos on Youtube or let them play games while I am reading.

It helps prevent all this kind of carry-on constantly...

As a kid I used to play games. I used to get home from school and play on Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Megadrive. I suppose it helped me to switch my brain off. They did not have tablets or mobile devices in those days I'm afraid!

Now I do have a mobile phone (hurray!) I have a Kindle and a laptop, but I just don't have any time for games. I know that some people play bingo games online but it's not something that I ever have the time for. The kids keep me very busy and when I am not studying or doing jobs in the house I am generally taking the kids out in the real world, getting fresh air and taking them out for new experiences.

I don't think that there is anything wrong specifically with letting the kids use tablets and mobile devices but I do think that like anything else, it should be in moderation. I like to monitor how much time they spend on them so that they do get a good balance in their lives.
